I knew from the start that this was going to be a really good signing. Smart move by Fletch.

They both have ended careers, though I'd say Cooke's track record of nastiness is much more lengthy than Bertuzzi's.
Everything Cooke has ever done is at least on some level forgivable. And he seems genuinely changed and ready to put things behind him.

Bertuuzi on the other hand is first and foremost, a giant dick. His comments to Wild fans waiting to buy game 6 tickets in 03 are the roots of my hate.

The Steve Moore incident is the whole rest of the tree. That was almost literally attempted murder on ice. There was no hockey play there. That was premeditated assault and after an incident like that I think Bertuuzi has no business playing hockey anywhere. I wouldn't even want him coaching a peewee team. Furthermore, the last time I looked, he was pulling all kinds of crap in the civil suit that Moore filed against him. It's probably still dragging on.

Do you know if it is Canadian or United States where the civil suit was filed?
